The ancient port and market town of Truro is situated in a valley at the head of the beautiful river bearing its name and is dominated by the splendid three spired cathedral which stands at its heart. Forming the retail, administrative and cultural centre of Cornwall, this small city offers a comprehensive range of retail and leisure amenities together with the country's leading educational facilities.
Standing on Lemon Street, one of the most distinctive and well known of the city's streets and lined with predominantly Georgian houses, Lemon Lodge enjoys the convenience of a walk into its bustling heart where there is a wide variety of restaurants, bistros and pubs together with a cinema and the Hall for Cornwall where there is an ever changing programme of live music and theatre.
Public transport links are excellent with a mainline rail connection to London Paddington and flights departing to international and domestic destinations from Newquay Airport.
Constructed in 1818 by John Chappel, Lemon Lodge is one of Truro's most recognisable period residences boasting a handsome stucco facade with canted bays and a central elliptical arched doorway enclosed by a Tuscan portico.
Grade II listed and dating from the Regency period, the property retains a wealth of traditional features whilst the accommodation is beautifully proportioned and offers significant flexibility. Set well back from the street behind a stone wall and high hedging, good privacy and seclusion are enjoyed whilst to the rear is a delightful landscaped garden enjoying views to the cathedral.
